This was dee-lish! I used Johnny's seasoning salt on the roast and instead of slicing the apples I diced them and the onions to the same size. I used fat free half-and-half, and because it has a tendency to break at a simmer, I added about 1/4 cup canned evaporated milk to make a more silky sauce. I used cooking spray rather than the 2 tablespoons of oil to save on fat, and I added some seasoned salt to the sauce. Served with a green salad and Israeli couscous that also had lentils and orzo in it I got from Trader Joes. What a fantastic meal! We will make this again!

Outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the savory with the touch of sweet from the apples. I made as recommended with one exception, I used 1/4 C of Calvados instead of apple cider. I knew this would work because I make a similar Wolfgang Puck recipe w/ this liquor. I did bump up the oven temperature to 375° because it was taking a bit too long (over 60 mins). I served with a green salad, the gravy over Spaetzle and a side of buttered peas. This seasoned pork roast could stand alone w/o the gravy. Just delightful!

Loved this!!! Because of time I did cook my roast in the crock pot on low for 8 hours with the seasonings, then made the cream sauce on the stovetop. The flavor was excellent! I used fat free half & half. I strongly recommend the cornstarch to thicken it up. Will make again!!!

Served this to a party of 12. They loved it. I might try a little less onion.

So yummy! My husband preferred it without the sauce, but that's a typical "meat & potato" kinda guy for you. Personally, I loved the sauce, it was subtle and didn't overpower the flavor of the roast. Definitely one for the vault!

I made this for St. Patrick's Day and it was a great hit. I forgot to add the mustard to the cider sauce but it was still very good. Thank you for the recipe.
